Hormone ReplacementHouston, TX

So many people are obese or overweight simply because their hormones are not where they need to be. Your hormones can affect the way you store and metabolize fat. They can also affect your skin, how healthy you look and how young you look. Abnormal hormones in certain cases can put you at risk for heart disease and also affect your sexual health.

Dr. Rodriguez’ Virility Restoration Plan

Have you experienced:

  • Decreased Erectile Function
  • Decreased Mental Ability
  • Loss of Muscle Strength

  • Trouble Urinating
  • Prostate Problems
  • Bone Loss
In the past two decades much attention has been directed to addressing the needs of aging women, as they approach menopause, go through menopause, and beyond. What about us, men?

Andropause (male menopause) has not received the same attention, in large part, because it is a more subtle, gradual decline of mental sharpness, sexual function, energy and stamina, lean muscle mass, vigor, sleep quality, flexibility, and mental well being. This deterioration creeps up on you, and you forget how good you felt, looked, and performed at age 29.

“We don’t lose our hormones because we age; we age because we lose our hormones.”

The good news is that in the blossoming field of Anti-aging Medicine (also referred to as Age Management Medicine), discoveries have been made that allow aging males (men over 40) to regain much of what they thought was lost forever. The tremendous health benefits of restoring men’s testosterone to the levels of a healthy 25-year old have been proven in many scientific studies, including lowering your chance of heart disease and prostate cancer. This can be done today with bio-identical hormones, which are chemically identical to what is normally produced in your body— not the synthetic, often illegal, drugs that cause undesirable problems and side effects.

With bioidentical hormone replacement, we can help treat the complete individual, providing you with a healthier body, mind and spirit. In comparison to synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are exactly the same as the hormones present in the human body.

Dr. Rodriguez combines testosterone optimization with measures to lower men’s estrogen levels and belly fat and methods to prevent the conversion of good testosterone to the “bad testosterone” (DHT, di-hydroxy testosterone) that contributes to male pattern baldness and prostate enlargement.

Testing & Treatment

Initial salivary and blood testing and follow-up monitoring are crucial for determining the most optimal treatment program.

Because of the complexity of the hormone system, issues that arise rarely stem from just one hormone. If there is a disruption in the balance of hormone produced by one gland, it can cause other glandular systems to participate and soon throw off the body’s entire system.

The Comprehensive Hormone Panel is an excellent starting place for evaluating hormone function in the body. This panel measures both reproduction (sex) and adrenal hormones. The Comprehensive Hormone Panel will test the following hormones:

  • Testosterone
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol
After baseline lab testing (blood and saliva), you can immediately start on a restoration program that may include the following components:
  • Initial testosterone injection
  • Testosterone crème for daily application
  • Implantable testosterone pellets
  • DHEA supplementation
  • Progesterone crème
  • Vitamin B-12 Injection
  • Vitamin B-12 with lipotropics (fat burners) injection
  • Estrogen blocking supplements
  • Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis sublingual troches (faster than pills)
  • Exercise and nutritional instruction and guidelines to boost testosterone and hGH (human growth hormone) production
  • Quarterly monitoring and adjustments

Women’s BIHOP

Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Plan

After age 30, many women may begin to feel less vibrant, less energetic, a bit chunkier, and often less attractive, even though to others they may look as beautiful as ever. Much of this gradual subtle deterioration may be related to the normal age-related decline of your body’s hormone levels.

By age 40, these changes often become more obvious in weight gain or difficulty staying slim, as well as more lines, wrinkles, dryness, discoloration, and large pores in the skin.

“We don’t lose our hormones because we age. We age because we lose our hormones.”

Are you suffering from two or more of the following symptoms of hormonal imbalance of decline?

  • Increased waist size
  • Decreased stamina
  • Weight gain or difficulty maintaining weight loss
  • Loss of libido
  • Depression, memory loss or foggy thinking
  • Unwanted hair growth on body or thinning hair on scalp
  • Hot flashes or night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Bone or muscle loss
  • Sleeplessness
  • Craving salty or fatty foods.
Many of these changes can be reversed, or even prevent if intervention is started early enough, by restoring our hormones to the levels of a normal healthy 25-year old. Dr. Rodriguez’ BIHOP (Bio-Identical Hormone Optimization Plan) does exactly that by using hormones that are chemically and biologically identical to what your body was accustomed to producing. These safe effective bio-identical hormones have none of the bad, fearful side effects reported with use of the drug companies’ synthetic hormones.

Your evaluation includes a thorough review of your medical history and symptoms and is followed by saliva and blood tests to evaluate the following, if indicated:

  • Estradiol
  • Testosterone (Yes! Women have it and need it , too!)
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol
  • Thyroid and iodine
  • Vitamin D
  • Growth hormone (hGH)
After baseline testing, you can immediately start on a restoration program that may include the following components:
  • Estrogen cream
  • Implantable estrogen pellets
  • Progesterone cream
  • Testosterone cream
  • Implantable estrogen pellets
  • DHEA supplementation
  • Vitamin B-12 Injection
  • Vitamin B-12 with lipotropics (fat burners) Injection
  • Thyroid hormone supplementation
  • hGH (human growth hormone) injections
  • Exercise and nutritional instruction and guidelines to naturally boost hGH production
